Purchasing a sofa is a lot like purchasing clothes. It is a pretty big deal for most people, and is exciting as well, but if you get the wrong design or the wrong combo, it can really impact the style you were going for. Also, because of the high cost associated with buying sofas and furniture in general, what people most often look for in their purchase is durability, comfort, some sort of guarantee of quality or brand name, friendly customer service, a decent range of options from which to choose, easily available information on product specs, customer comments and reviews, and perhaps some information on design and décor, or tips and suggestions related to them.
So if you are here because you want to outfit your home or living area with a new piece of furniture because your current sofa or sectional is in need of replacement, or perhaps because you just need something new and fresh to liven up your home once again, you’ve come to the right place!

Featuring firm, hardwood legs, and with a mushroom gray and light brown exterior, this sofa sectional can really give your home a fancy and expensive look if you combine it with fancy drapes, background picture frames, a corner rocking chair, or a side coffee table.

But since the Aquila sectional aims to provide your living space with a classy touch, you can create traditional and even cosmopolitan settings in your home using decorative toss pillows (toss pillows are not provided with this item), a few colorful drapes, or with a contrasting rug.

If you are lucky enough to get this sofa before it goes out of stock, you’ll be very happy with your purchase. Some customers have said that the pictures don’t justify the sectional at all and that it is much, much more beautiful in person. The color is a little misguiding, and it is a little more on the mushroom side rather than gray, but that is a plus point. Also, the legs are lighter than what they look like in the picture, but they are very strong. It sometimes comes with a few pillows to compliment it, but pillows are not a standard item part. The best thing about this item is its super-easy assembly.
As for Wayfair’s service, there were rarely any complaints. The item often ships ahead of time, and the goal is, of course, to complete delivery with no scratches or damages of any type. The bottom-line pros are that it is easy to assemble and is very beautiful.
There were a number of unrelated downsides to this product. It can be a little hard, not to mention small on the back, and not having detachable cushions means cleaning – at least washing – is not really possible, even though there are zips attached to all six of the cushions because once you unzip them, it can be very difficult to shut them back.
There is no headrest, so you might have to add a pillow on the neck area to support yourself above the shoulders, and one customer reported that thin threads were used in sewing and that a few strands started to come out very soon.
There is a latch that is supposed to connect the two pieces together, but it can be very difficult to hook, and it sometimes does not attach properly. This results in the legs of the couch being uneven, with one leg staying off of the floor by as much as an inch, and it allows the loveseat section to be pushed a few inches forward or backward while still attached. At the given price, the craftsmanship on the couch is expected to not be perfect.
If you want to furnish your living space with a piece of functional furniture that is somewhat high end, is easy to install and assemble, comes in a lovely color, and can be used with a fair amount of flexibility and versatility, this is a great sofa sectional to start with. The average rating of 4.6 stars on a scale of 5 is one of the highest from amongst all sofa sectionals that we have reviewed.
Although this item is a little more expensive than your average sofa sectional, it is definitely worth it. Construction on a solid frame to go along with a modern design, straight lines, and a traditional silhouette are key features of this sofa sectional. Perfect for individuals who want stylish and higher-end furniture solution in their home, this sofa, although it is made to order, is a great buy.
The final word with the Aquila sectional from Langley Street is that you get a ton of couch for your buck. However, if it is important to you that it be perfect, you should perhaps spend a little more money and look elsewhere. Otherwise, it is as good as can be.
